APhA-APRS ESAS Keynote: Optimizing Electronic Health Records in Community Pharmacy


Electronic health records (EHR) are the new normal—and implementing them well is an asset to any practice. This year’s keynote will explore current research and how it informs EHR use in non-institutional settings. Learn how researchers can design research that builds on this evidence to improve EHR use in community pharmacy settings—and how the evidence can guide future policy decisions.

Pharmacist Learning Objectives

At the completion of this knowledge-based activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss research initiatives that have been conducted regarding electronic health records (EHRs).
  2. Explain strategies to conduct research to improve the use of EHRs in community pharmacy settings, including research on EHR interface design.
